Opportunities for Graduate Students

Virtual Graduate Student Writing Group

On Fridays at 10 am the Center for 21st Century Studies will host a virtual graduate student writing group. Part support group, part practical tips and strategies, we’ll have a brief presentation from a scholar on a writing-related topic (it’ll be different every week), and then we will open it up to the group to discuss our own writing projects, progress, and roadblocks. Come as regularly or as infrequently as you’re able; this is a space intended to be casual, supportive, and practical, and we’ll talk about different issues each time.

Hosted by C21 Deputy Director Maureen Ryan and with a rotating cast of experts you can bring your questions to. Feel free to suggest a topic, from citation management software to creating outlines to staying organized in a big writing project like a dissertation.

Graduate Fellows at the Center

The call for Graduate Fellows is currently closed. Please check back in Spring 2021 for information on the call for 2021-22 Graduate Fellows!

C21 employs three part-time graduate fellows (doctoral candidates) whose studies align with our interests in critical, digital, and public humanities. Employment includes salary plus tuition remission. A C21 graduate fellowship offers the opportunity to meet visiting scholars and attend C21 events, and to work with technologies that will strengthen our web presence.

Midwest Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference

The Center is co-sponsor of the annual Midwest Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference, a forum that gives graduate students valuable experience in presenting their work publicly and in mastering the give and take of academic question and answer sessions. Further information about the conference can be found on themigc.com.
